    All 5 ties are up today guys. Have at it. The two "formal" ties are pre-orders, but all the rest are in stock, and some GREAT fabrics!

    Just know that if you're wearing one of these heavyweight tweed ties, you'll have one more defensive mechanism just in case. Made from heavyweight British overcoating, this tie harkens back to our original Wooly Mammoths in the fact that it is made completely unlined and in a three fold pattern. It may be the thickest tie we have on hand this season, thick enough, dare I say, to stop bullets. We only have four of these, and once they're gone, they're gone!

    Yesterday's look was also focus on bullet penetration prevention but in a different way:

    We still have some of this on hand to cut to order if anyone is looking for a badass camo tie in either 3.25 inch or 3 inches.

    Forgive me if I missed it, but I didn't see if you answered my post.. Is this multicam? If so, where did you purchase it from?

    Nope, the angle makes the knot looks skimpier than it is.

    I don't think it is. IIRC its designer camo from Italy our suppliers managed to source for us.

    Cool, thanks! I used to be in touch with Crye Precision when they first started producing MultiCam. I was going to be super impressed/shocked they went on to 'civilian' fabrics.

    Some fit pics from this past week. Took my classes to Greenwood Cemetery...if any locals have never been to just walk around and observe, or even take a guided tour, I highly recommend it. One of the most beautiful places in Brooklyn, and one of the last places whose natural landscape best resembles what Brooklyn looked like in the time Bay Ridge was still called Yellow Hook. Once the grid was established the natural landscape was leveled to make construction easier.

    Never Released Forest Green Cashmere:

    The Forest Green was a sample we had created by a new maker...we looked far and wide for someone who can make a tie to our specs, almost to our detriment (we know and have heard loud and clear that most people's biggest gripe with our products was the fact that we never could seem to keep enough stock up). Well, this should help alleviate that. We did not want to rush and push for product before the Holidays and sacrifice quality for a rushed product, but we expect the first batch of exquisitely handcrafted ties to arrive right around or slightly after Christmas...and we know the wait will be worth it.
